Hey guys, just picked up my bike a couple of days ago and was wondering if anyone has accessed the 12v auxiliary connector yet? I saw a few threads on the FZ-09 forums, but it appears the connector is on the right side on those bikes.. The manual for the FZ-07 states it is under the left tank cover. There is also a connector plug under the rear seat. I assume that is used to hooked to a diagnostics tester. If anyone has anything to add such as a specific USB charger they like feel free to jump in... Thanks

I was about to post the same question. I looked last night and found what I thought was it but it was connected to the rectifier so that can't be right.

There are a lot of them on ebay get connected directly to the battery then run the cable under the seat and under the tank fairing then it lash on to the handle bar. That my next project already got HID for mine lol

Hey iseetheruins, I found the connector on the left side, it is not easy to reach but it can be unplugged from its cap and rerouted out to just below the black lower tank cover thing. The connector and cap are white plastic. Just look for anything that you think could be it and start unplugging, since this accessory plug is not electrically connected to anything yet you will be sure to have fount it when you see into the mating cap and see only white plastic with no electrical pins. I have asked my dealer to try to locate the correct mating plug to mate with this but for now I have just tinned some leads and jammed them in. Works fine for now.

I installed the connector for the Aux output. It was definitely a pain to access the wiring harness under there...Took the side panel off, which included taking the seat off...but it was a good chance to look around in there anyway.
ordered a dual USB port from Ebay....and it was defective... they are sending another one out.. In the meantime I found another one at CYCLE GEAR in Norfolk, VA. They said they just received it, its Trackside brand. single USB. 2.1 amp output.with a protective cover....also can be hooked to a battery tender... I like the fact it can be disconnected if need be... i'll post pics later.

I cant even fisnd a link to the usb adapter that i bought online.... they literally just unpacked it from the shipment before i got there...good timing I guess...

Just a sidenote... My Samsung galaxy S5 would not charge using that unit. I had to modify a micro usb cable to become a charge only cable so that my phone would recognize it as charger. However, it worked with every other phone I could find with a regular datasync/ cable (Samsung Note 3, LG, Windows phone, Motorola Razor, and an iphone).

Where did you get the connector for the Aux output? Can you post a link to it? Thank you.

2 pin MT-90

The usb adapter came from cycle gear (in store) Trackside single usb connector...they dont have it listed on their website yet.
The first adapter I got from Ebay...and it was defective... however they did quickly ship a new one out when I told them it was no good.

I like this one because it is a 2 port but it is considerably larger than the trackside model.

The Total install time was maybe a couple hours...but that may be longer than it would actually take considering I ended up with a defective USB port on the first try and had to cut splice and run the wires twice...

OK, trying to understand. :/ So is the 2 pin MT-90 adapter so it can be plugged into the harness under the tank? Then you cut off the round ends of the connectors from the USB and connect that to the MT-90?

Ok, sorry about the delay.
Yes the MT-09(male) is used on the USB connector after you cut the round battery terminal ends off. It can then be plugged into the wiring harness under the tank.
I ordered the MT09-2B connector set about 1/3rd of the way down the page. However, the B connectors appear to have a different tab than the one on the FZ-07 so I clipped and filed the tab on the bike and it now locks perfectly. So I think the part you need is actually MT09-2 although the other one will work. It is a fairly simple task to attach them and would have worked flawlessly if I had not ended up with a defective USB port on the first attempt.
I attached a couple of photos to show the connector... it was a bit difficult to get good focus on it.

If you look at the connector in the photos, you can see the 2 small tabs on top. I clipped those of with wire cutters and fitment was great afterwads....it still has the locking clip so that it can't fall out.

Question for Iseetheruins. Do I need the female or the male connecter? Question #2 Where did you place the actual USB on your bike? Thank you in advance.

According to the cycle terminal photo.. we need the male connector...I personally would have called it the female since you insert the plug from the bike into it...but they have it captioned as MALE.

I have an Ermax windscreen on my bike and i attached the USB port on the inside of the mounting bracket just above the key...I am going to replace the adhesive that came with it. I think velcro will work better.

Thanks for the detailed tips. I've installed today my USB adapter connected to the auxiliary port for my old navigation system. See pictures....
